The Zionist Imperative:
Jewish Culture in Israel – No Apologies Necessary
Israel is already a “state of all its citizens” in that all Israelis – Jews and non-Jews alike – have the right to vote and other basic rights. Just as Jews in Western countries would not attempt to undermine the Christian culture and symbols that surround them, Arab Israelis must accept the majority Jewish culture. Israel must preserve its uniquely Jewish character; to abandon it would be no different than acquiescing to those who seek to delegitimize the Jewish state altogether.
